Struggle against prisons in Spain

In May of 2013, 13 prison guards will face charges for torture, related to the spontaneous riot that broke out in the prison of Cuatre Camins in 2004. It is the first time in the history of Spain that prison guards have to testify in front of a judge about torture that is going on in Spanish prisons. An anarchist from the campaign "Carcel=Tortura" speaks about this and other campaigns unfolding in Spain.
